    These are the tablets I'm referring to: wacom tablet| B&H Photo Video

    I have heard they make PP much easier than using a mouse, for example.

    Does anybody have / use one of these and find them worthwhile?

    Do you need an expensive one to get your money's worth?

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for reading...

    Yes, Yes and Yes. Tablets (especially Wacom) are a great tool for photo editing. Many people that I've talked to, actually prefer them as a mouse replacement for most things, but I only use mine for photo editing.

    It's especially good for anything involve a type of brush tool. So cloning/healing in Lightroom or Photoshop, any sort of drawing or painting in Photoshop CS etc.

    On of the best things about them, is they (the pens) are pressure sensitive and you can set that pressure to different variables like the size of the brush, or the flow, density etc.

    I have a small one, I wish I had a larger one, although I don't know where I'd put it on my desk.

    I use a bamboo tablet, made by wacom, I don't use it all the time but for more extensive work, it is very useful, took me a little bit of time to get used to it, but now I find it much more efficient than the computer mouse.

    How does this work? So you set the sensitivity for "hard press" means the brush gets bigger and "soft press" and it gets smaller, etc? That has to take some getting used to I would think.

    Not an attempt at a quote - just a question inspired by the one you posed in your other thread
